in the last few days, i have been blessed with tender mercies. small things that have helped me, that have prevented me from falling into a pit of sadness and despair. things like getting to go to the football game, having an interview at the desired workplace, happy songs on the radio, mormon messages, feeling mostly at peace, meeting cute boys. i know these are all small and maybe even insignificant, but to me, they are important.
i wondered if i had done the right thing. and honestly, i think that i did. i prayed about this for a long time. i prayed to know if my feelings were correct- and i felt at peace. i prayed to be led to know how to handle the situation- and i was. i have to believe that despite the change and the sadness that there are better days ahead.
“Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
so it's time to move on. to embrace the exciting and unknown days ahead. i may have lost a best friend and had my heart broken, but i know doors will open. and i am a tiny bit excited for that. i honestly have no idea where this school year will lead me. but i know that with the Lord anything is possible!
